The top American furniture retailer now accepts cryptocurrencies, as payment processor BitPay shared a screenshot of the store’s payment options. Additionally, users can take advantage of a limited 7% cashback when shopping with cryptocurrencies.
Rooms To Go, an American furniture store chain, was founded in September 1990 by Jeffrey and Morty Seaman when they sold Seaman Furniture Company. According to Furniture Today, Rooms To Go is the third largest furniture retailer in the U.S. with over 132 locations.
Aside from Shiba Inu, BitPay supports Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) and five USD-pegged stablecoins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC and USDP).
BitPay announced the addition of ApeCoin (APE) and Euro-backed stablecoin Euro Coin (EUROC) to the list of available cryptocurrencies in August.
Acceptance of cryptocurrency as payment continues to grow. As reported earlier by U.Today, luxury watch brands Hublot and Tag Heuer have indicated cryptocurrency acceptance as payment methods. Yacht companies, fast food delivery company UberEats and luxury fashion brand Gucci are not left off this exhaustive list.
